OK, I just can't get enough of the Pepper Palace! They have free samples of sauces and salsas and chips to put the sauce on. So many different flavors... this is a MUST stop for me every trip to Broadway at the Beach.

But I have to tell a funny story about myself... we stopped at the Pepper Palace during our Spring Break trip in March and I was making my way around the store reading bottles and sampling sauces (while Misti rolled her eyes and waited patiently for me to get my fill). I wasn't quite paying attention and ended up in the REALLY hot section. I grabbed hold of a sauce and liberally coated a chip. The next thing I knew, smoke was coming out of my ears, my throat was bleeding (not really), and tears were flowing (that's true). I looked at the bottled with the appropriate name of "Burn A$$ Hot." Had a big warning label for "Ghost Peppers, the hottest pepper in the World."

I couldn't speak, but I had to get something to drink RIGHT NOW! I went running out of the store with Misti chasing me, looking for a water fountain or anything. Heck, I would have drank out of the toilet if I could have found the restrooms. I ran around in circles for awhile and Misti's look of amusement changed to genuine concern. We found a Yogurt shop and she had to order for me. $8 later, I had my spoon full of yogurt and my mouth went from Nuclear to just numb. Misti asked me if I'd ever do something that dumb again, and of course the answer was "yes." I can't wait to stop by there again during our next visit. :lol:

My son will love that place! We'll have to look for it this time.
I don't think we have noticed that store before.

It's in the "Caribbean Village" section, near Landry's Seafood... across the water from the Wonderworks building. It is AWESOME, but stay away from the Ghost Peppers!

Sounds like my kind of place ! :nanner:

Good call on the yogurt..... water actually makes the hotness worse since the oil from the pepper floats on water and will then be distributed further around your mouth/throat. Milk/dairy somehow isolates your taste buds from the oil. It's on some Alton Brown episode somewhere :lol:

If I recall, I think the yogurt shop is very close to the pepper store :lol: . Wonder if they were thinking of situations like yours when they picked that location?

Pepper Palace is probably the store I spend the most time in our whol vacation. I try as many of the sauces as possible. A few years ago I tried one it was so hot I felt like I was drunk when I left the place. Did you ever try the one where you have to sign the waiver? My brothers friend did 2 years ago and he surprisingly said it was not too bad. We actually order from PP a few times a year, their sauces are awesome.

The waiver, great marketing ploy :)

FYI, the Ghost Pepper is just over a million btu.

The hottest pepper in the world comes from right here in SC it's the Carolina Reaper and comes in at 2.2 million btu's.

To put this in perspective, the jalapeno is 3500-45,00 btu's and a habenaro is 100,000-350,000 btu.

Carolina Reaper..... from Wiki:

The Carolina Reaper is a hybrid cultivar of chili pepper of the Capsicum chinense species, originally called the "HP22B", bred by cultivator Ed Currie, who runs PuckerButt Pepper Company in Fort Mill, South Carolina, United States.

I generally stop by Pepper Palace when in MB, but more frequently in Gatlinburg and they have a new store in Pigeon Forge also. My favorite "hot sauce" is the sweet Vidalia onion/peach sauce. Good flavor, not much heat to me. They have some really good rubs and such for meat. I like to apply some smoked kosher salt they sell to some veggies when roasting, and I do like their chop house steak seasoning.

I'm so excited to know this place is still open. We haven't been to the beach in almost 7 years, but they were just opening then. I still have my Red Savina powder that I use, and I cannot wait to go back. I hope they have some Ghost pepper powder, or even Reaper powder!
